Now that “web 2.0” has been around for a while, it’s become apparent that even the most mundane features of desktop apps are going to be available through web-based services. You’ve probably seen the highlighting feature in word processors like Microsoft Word. Do you need it for web pages and blog posts, too? Markkit, the web highlighter, has got you covered.

Just drag the Markkit bookmarklet (try saying that 10 times fast) to your bookmarks toolbar, and click it whenever you want to highlight some important text on a webpage. You don’t get to use a fancy highlighter icon as a cursor or anything, just select text like normal to highlight it in yellow. If you make a mistake, you can mouse over the text to reveal an “unmark” button. Your highlighted pages have their own Markkit URLs, so you can save and share them by bookmarking them in your browser or on a service like Delicious.
